Studies in Zechariah (Part 3) – The 2nd and 3rd Night Visions

Monday, 19th December 2022
Now, going on to the next section of our study*, contained in the last four verses of this 1st chapter of Zechariah, we pass on to consider his 2nd Vision which deals with the Four Horns and the Four Carpenters. We read about the four horns in v18 and in the following verse we are told that they were “the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem”.

“The Three Witnesses to Jesus’s Glory”

Sunday, 18th December 2022

Readings: Job 22; Haggai 1-2; 1 John 5

In 2012, the world’s last surviving veteran of World War One died. Florence Green was a member of the British Women’s Royal Air Force, serving as a mess steward. At the time her death was announced in the media, people were very mindful that it meant the loss of a living witness to what that particular conflict was like. There is no longer anyone alive who experienced it and can give a first-hand account.

The wine cup of God’s wrath (Part 2 of 2)

Monday, 12th December 2022

The wine cup of God’s wrath reappears in Revelation, with a link back to Jeremiah 25. In Jeremiah it was Babylon who drank the cup last, and in Revelation we find that ‘Babylon’ is again made to drink from the cup in the last days.

Our Conscience

Our Conscience

Readings: Job 13; Nahum 3; 1 Peter 1

In Romans 7:14-24, we see how Paul struggles with his desire to do good yet sin is always with him. It is a battle each and every one of us is more than familiar with on a daily basis. So, let us consider our conscience and how it is the tool that God has given each of us to help us walk this journey to the kingdom.

The wine cup of God’s wrath (Part 1 of 2)

Monday, 5th December 2022

In the scriptures, we normally see drinking and sharing wine as a positive thing, especially as it forms a key part of the Lord’s supper. Yet there are also negative cups that we come across on occasions, in both the Old and New Testament.

For example, Jesus says to James and John: “Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” (Matthew 20:22). Similarly, in Gethsemane, Jesus prayed: “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” (26:39). In both these cases, the cup being referred to by Jesus is not a literal cup, but rather represents the suffering which he would go through.

The Shield of Faith

Sunday, 4th December 2022

Readings: Job 5; Micah 1; Hebrews 11

The apostle’s powerful passage on ‘faith’ in Hebrews 11 commences in chapter 10:36 using the words of Habakkuk to exhort us to be strong in faith as we wait patiently for God’s salvation: “ye have need of patience… a little while… the just shall live by faith. We are to stand firm waiting for God to fulfil His plan: “...we are not of them who draw back unto perdition, but of them that believe…” (v39).

“He who believes and is baptised will be saved”

Thursday, 1st December 2022

Reading: Mark 16                                                                

If only there was a way to start again!  To make a fresh start, and really begin again! There is. It’s called “Baptism”.

Lessons from Nehemiah (Part 2 of 2)

Monday, 28th November 2022

His Second Visit to Jerusalem

After Nehemiah and Ezra had introduced a spiritual revival in the returned exiles of Judah, the absence of spiritual leadership precipitated by the return of Nehemiah to Shushan, led to a decline in faith. In his second visit to Jerusalem, Nehemiah seeks, once more, to bring the people back to their God. In Part 1 of our study, we said that there were two main sections to the book – the building of the physical wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 1–6) and the spiritual building and renewal of the people (7–12). The finale is in chapter 13 which records spiritual decline and how Nehemiah seeks to reverse it.

Sound in doctrine; Sound in faith; Sound in speech

Sunday, 27th November 2022

Readings: Esther 2; Amos 7; Titus 1-3

How important is it that we should be “sound” in our faith? The word “sound” means healthy and Titus was encouraged by Paul to appoint elders to guide the meeting in the “sound” principles of the Truth. In Titus 1:5 we read: For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee”.

Lessons from Nehemiah (Part 1 of 2)

Monday, 21st November 2022
The position of the book of Nehemiah in our Bibles makes it is easy to forget that it records the close of Old Testament history. Four hundred or so years pass from Nehemiah’s time to when the angel Gabriel appears to Zechariah (Zacharias; King James Version) in the temple at Jerusalem to announce John the Baptist’s birth.
